Sutton McElroy

Beverage Manager, Certified Sommelier, Staff Educator

My main focus for the past several years has been in beverage management. This fostered my love of craft cocktails, history, innovation, problem solving, and numbers. Over the years, my passion for wine and spirits ultimately lead to my journey of becoming a Certified Sommelier in 2019.
